What would you build if you could get access to 40,000 streetlights? The City of San Jose is about to find out. Initial proposals are due November 30 for upgrading with LEDs streetlights in this northern California city of 1.1 million residents. It sounds like a dream project for the Internet of Things, especially given its location in the heart of Silicon Valley. Indeed on August 26, 40 representatives of lighting, telecommunications, technology, energy and other companies attended an initial conference on the city’s request for proposals issued August 3. But there’s a catch: You have to create your own return-on-investment for the project.

In April 2013, an attack on Pacific Gas & Electric’s (PG&E) Metcalf transmission substation near San Jose, Calif. knocked the station out of commission. The attackers cut fiber optic cables and opened fire on the substation. Although the attack wasn’t well-publicized in the media, it became a call for utility companies to reassess their security. Those threats are something that the federal government is focused on all the time.
